I got a place for London .............................
Always mean't to give up the fags when I got one
but finding it really hard?
I'm sure your not Cake I lit up afte my first half marathon- didn't really care
Lot of peeps at work smoke and run was just windering if they were strange but now think they're just normal]
when i cam run 13.1 mile as compared to my friends who smoke and do no excersisewhy is is disgusting?
Come on, there's something hilarious about crossing the finish line and lighting up!
Mr Puffy: Sounds like the makings of a hamlet cigar advert.

It's not really the running part that is disgusting mate.
I will leave the thread at this, before I make some real enemies.
No ememies but might start putting links up for Bill hicks.
Agree smoking is disgusting hence why trying to quit. Anyone got a fag? I'm gagging for one after reading this.

I know thats why I'm going back on the patches tomorrow!!!
Glad I'm not the only one Flatfooted- keep it up!
sorry you are struggling> I have trined for stuff and smoked 30-40 a day and tried to stop numerous times. To me -you are best doing the psychological work first and then stop. I have got a free download of Allen Carr's Easyway To Stop Smoking which has really helped me. I will find the link. IMHO patches are for trousers.
It is disgusting as most smokers know and feel. The thing is comments about it being disgusting and will kill you do not help a bit.
here you are. It is free so nowt to lose. If you read it , it will help a lot at worst and maybe even stop you.
Stopped smoking 7 weeks ago, its easy all in the head, really 3 days of hell then easy street. What is hard is staying quit, done it maybe 5 times over 18yrs, even did 2 yrs once.
But smoking is not that hard to stop you just have to be in the frame of mind to do it, and go in determined. Going cold turkey works for me but try the patches or gums, but once you do you feel great and your running and endurance will improve.
Good luck guys and gals, it really is hard for the first 3 days and then it does get easy. One way of keeping stopped is what ever you spend on cigs you put in a jar, and when you have enough buy a pair of new running shoes or a new garmin , then u have something to show rather than smelly breath and clothes. lol.
I mean it give up your running will improve
Andreia, ive smoked my way around half a dozen marathons and even more Ironman races, im not proud of it but its an addiction ive thus far not been able to control. Ive tried giving up numerous times and made it no further than 3 weeks.Im currently planning my next attempt with the help of champix which im starting on Monday.Good luck with your running and kicking the ciggies.
I can understand how difficult it must be for you as I remember 13 years ago the same feeling of trying to give up and always never quite doing it. Then one day my lung collapsed and I've not touched one since. For a year I had lung problems with a further collapse and at times thought I'd permanently damaged my lungs as there was talk of having to have a major op at one point! Since then I've really improved with my running but I do wonder if the smoking has prevented me really reaching my full potential. Give up, your lungs really will thank you and you'll be a much better runner for it. Smell the fresh air, not the stinking smell of fags!
You might think you can run and smoke and I'm sure you can, but there will still be damage going on inside. It's kind of counter productive really isn't it to smoke and run.
